Chemical Information
FooDB Name3-Mercapto-3-methyl-1-butanol
Description3-Mercapto-3-methyl-1-butanol, also known as 3-methyl-3-sulfanylbutan-1-ol or fema 3854, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as alkylthiols. These are organic compounds containing the thiol functional group linked to an alkyl chain. 3-Mercapto-3-methyl-1-butanol is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 3-Mercapto-3-methyl-1-butanol is a sweet, meat broth, and roasted tasting compound. 3-Mercapto-3-methyl-1-butanol has been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as alcoholic beverages, coffee and coffee products, and fruits. This could make 3-mercapto-3-methyl-1-butanol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
